In my personal opinion, HPA tanks are fine if they sit around for a bit with some pressure in them. I almost always leave the field with ~1500-2500 psi in my tanks. I do not know whether it is a good idea or not to leave a CO2 tank under pressure.

Under the Air Discussions section, I'm sure you will definitely find a better answer there (especially from all the manufacturing reps and airsmiths).

I always make sure to stop by the fill station one last time b4 they close up for a fill so I can play with my marker at home.

I've left Co2 in tanks for years with no problems. Don't empty them completely or you'll end up moisture in them.

Plus the next time it gets filled it will be emptied entirely anyway.

I left air in my HPA tank for over a year, just fired it up again today, zero issues.
